Once Zion signs w/ NB (and that's the rumor), it's gonna get interesting.

As a NOLA resident, my best-case is

1) Knicks get the 1 and draft Zion
2) KD and Kyrie sign w/ the Knicks
3) Pels trade AD for Zion and some other stuff
4) I get Pels season tix again...
How about skipping all of those steps and have Pelicans simply win the lottery

Just got off the phone with NB... I had placed an additional order last week during the Kawhi drop because I forgot to use Ebates and my birthday coupon on my original order... Turns out they over sold... they are making more to accommodate the pending orders but it’s going to take at least a month... They will not be re-releasing this colorway again but more pairs are due out at the end of the year... they also provided a $100 coupon for the inconvenience... Great customer service from NB... most other brands would have just cancelled with no explanation...

How’d you manage to get multiple orders in? It was pretty much a wrap after I got my OMN1S pair.

I’ve only tried them on but they feel like they run about a half size long. Not sure yet on the performance but visually/aesthetically I wasn’t super impressed. Thought there’d be some premium materials seeing as it’s a limited release but it looks like the ankle leather is just embossed. Could have done better than a regular new balance box for this release as well imo.

That being said I’m a die hard Raptors fan so this is holding a special place in my collection after that game 7.

I had 1 click payment setup which seemed to work since it skipped the whole checkout process while most people kept getting cart jacked...

Sizes were randomly popping up about 20 mins after the initial drop... I guess I got lucky... They were offering 15% Ebates at the time so it was well worth it

Yeah I had set that up as well which was clutch as I got my order in right when they dropped. Tried to circle back for another pair but that wasn’t happening though. But to be fair I gave up after about 15-20 minutes since I had to head out to watch game 5 lol. Ebates was only at 9% in Canada too.

I just want to laugh at it

By no means I am no Nike/Jordan fan, just ordered some AirMax2L

But if Nike oversell, they’ll just cancel your order.

$100 coupon! Oh sht. What are the restrictions? I want those $89 997H Concord-White so bad......

What does Nike give you? 10% Coupon. FFS

Nike sold so many shoes that they don’t need you as a customer. Perhaps that’s the joke.

Doesn’t look like there are any restrictions... I asked and he said it could be used on NB1 so I will be using it to make a pair of 997s in the near future... NB seems to actually care about their customers... They’ve definitely earned a lot more business from me...
